New mini-series/project up on my website.
How I love thee. (Trailer)
ASC Magazine interview Wally Pfister & Christopher... →
Such a damn good interview. Wally Pfister is one of my favorite DPs.
Almost proper MI stuff
Another scratched frame… Some leftover ribbons from presumably freed balloons on a park bench next to us.
Question: A or B?
A) Film torn by developer: B) Film back breaks causing crazy electronic shutter failures like this to happen: Answer: I’ll take both please.
An open letter
To those who believe digital files stay happy and keen forever. They don’t. (This also applies to digitally shot films and why their storage is quite expensive)
Best drink ever created
No one needs this many lenses
I repeat: NO ONE NEEDS THIS MANY LENSES.
Randy P. Martin visited India
The photos he took there display his fantastic sense of scale, really giving you the feel of the environment. What I like most is what I see in this photo below. Usually when tourists/photojournalists visit foreign cultures we always get the same perspective; long lensed close ups, usually from slightly above the subject.Here we get a photo on a plane level to the subjects, with a beautiful...
My Mamiya familly is now complete. Which means I’m stuck with my crap GoPhone til I make more money for an iPhone.
One Year Later
Bought for 1,200 sold for 880 dollars. That’s 320 dollars of digital rot.
11 miles / 30 minutes
Finally found a place for my Cargo
Now it’s called “Vault” and there’s actually a link on my website for it (unlike before). It’s for all the outtakes and work that doesn’t fit anywhere in particular. People like that sort of thing it seems.
A short from Alex Prager with Matthew Libatique as DP? I would very much like to see this.
If you have a song or any type of audio playing on your website dedicated to your photography… It basically serves as a distraction to the content of your site. But this, let’s be honest here, is probably on purpose… You’re just trying to distract me from the fact that your photography is terrible.
Some Ways to Disappear: Issue One
The book is printed on a nice heavy paper, in which the ink sets, giving the photos a lovely subdued feel. Much like they’ve been hidden away in a dark attic for years… waiting for you to find them. Kirill Kuletski’s photograph here is most certainly my favorite among the photos, his work is genuinely honest and subtle. As a whole the photos are tightly curated, which is a...
This scene made my mouth drop. Hardly anything causes such a thing to happen.
Thomas Prior's new series is up
And this is probably my favorite: Go check it out: Maho Beach.
well this didn’t work out.
A Serious Man
Is a movie I wish I could have seen in theaters. Everything about it is so relentlessly perfect.
Best Internet Find of the Day
Pretty fascinating stuff. Taking landforms and arbitrarily connecting them with animals and then snippets of scripture to support rather racist and close minded views. Best example is Africa. Compared to a brainless horned skull. Fantastic, really. Every other nation is a serpent, or scorpion, or elephant (which in one entry is called good, and another considered bad). And by the...
Catching up on some Photo Books
Shane Lavalette’s Lay Flat issue 2: Michael D Brown and Josepha Sanna’s Some Ways to Disappear issue 1: Maybe I’ll stay more on top from now on.
The first fellow HHS Contender I really completely dig. I think it’s always impressive when an artist is able to put all of their works together and it all just clicks. This one in particular showcases a mastery of lines few photographers can match. (((website)))
It’s now much more straightforward with only 7 clickable menu links as opposed to the previous 10+ in the menu and 20 more throughout the site. I still have to fix some sizing issues on the first two series & I’m adding a random image generator for the main page. Tell me what you think?
Goodbye FFView and your frustrating interface…. and hello Simple Comic.
Saw Brian Glovis. Saw Megan Leonard.
